Posh Spice is not much of an L.A. Dodgers fan, but there she was on Monday, throwing out the first pitch in Dodger Stadium before a game against the Mets. This is akin to parading Paris Hilton in front of the fans at Old Trafford before a Manchester United game. With Posh, aka Victoria Beckham, the wife of Los Angeles-bound soccer star David Beckham, the Dodgers don’t have much of a spokeswoman. She needed some prompting before she would even say something nice about the Dodgers. In front of reporters, Tommy Lasorda urged her: “You’d better tell people that you really love the Dodgers.” “OK, I love the Dodgers,” she said. So heartfelt. Meanwhile, the guy who prefered to be tasered than to remove his Dodgers cap has still not been formally invited to a game.
